Hive log

    Dear Sandboxers :)

    i am currently trying to connect the sandbox to micrsostrategy.

    – ODBC Connection is set up (32Bit – prereq for microstrategy)
    – DNS Connection selected in microstrat. desktop

    When trying to receive the list of Hive tables, i receive the following error message:

    Error from Hive: ETIMEDOUT. Connection String: DSN=Sample Hortonworks Hive DSN;UID=hue;
    [S1000:34: on HDBC]

    Couldn’t find a log entry in the sandbox hive.

    Any suggestions on what i can do to solve the problem?

    My best wishes

    Hi Jan,
    You may need to modify your ODBC connection to use the IP assigned to the sandbox. It should be a 10.x.x.x address. You will also need to make sure it is using the correct port which by default should be 10000. I hope this helps.

    Hi Ian,

    thank you very much for your answer. Sorry for the delays, i was a few days off.

    Just to put this right:

    The ODBC Connection is set up correctly:

    Driver Version: V1.4.5.1005

    Running connectivity tests…

    Attempting connection
    Connection established
    Disconnecting from server


    But when trying to use this connection in microstrategy desktop, i receive the error message:

    Error from Hive: ETIMEDOUT. Connection String: DSN=Sample Hortonworks Hive DSN;UID=hue;
    [S1000:34: on HDBC]

    By writing this, i realize, that this is a timeout error. Hence i’ll try to adjust the msi desktop timeout settings.
